we enjoyed a Saturday stroll over the bright blue waters towards the castle and really enjoyed walking over this bridge and taking photos up and down stream of the beautiful villas that line the river. Well worth the stroll and the look

Myself and my husband walked along the river in Verona. It was a fabulous walk and this bridge was our finishing point. Definitely worth a visit!

Ponte Pietra, the Stone Bridge, built originally by the Romans. The bridge has undergone several reconstructions and remains one of the most important monuments of Roman Verona. It is legitimate to date the bridge prior to 89 B.C. – the year when Verona became a Latin colony – an initial bridge across the Adige, perhaps in wood, may have been... More

Ponte Pietra is a great place to capture a beautiful picture. I actually found that the best place to get the bridge as well as the castle in your pictures is from the next bridge down the river, it was near Piazza San Tomaso. I went at night and it was very beautiful. Enjoy!

Was a treat to wander over the bridge when it was so quiet in the evening. Beautifully restored giving a wonderful sense of old Verona. Love the bridges in this city :)

The bridge is beautiful. If you are coming in from the city, I would recommend walking across and getting a view from the other side. The waters of the Adige as they flow beneath sparkle and you get a beautiful view of the city along the river. The downside is the traffic on the road that runs along the river.... More

Prior to the Roman era the original residents of Verona had a series of large stepping stones over the Adige River. Then the Romans built a glorious stone bridge which was washed away in one of the many floods which have troubled this region over the centuries. The outline of stairways and other remains can be seen on both sides... More

What a beautiful bridge. Although it was badly damaged during the second world war it was rebuilt using the same materials as the original. They did a superb job and it is amazing to walk across a bridge 2000 years old

A group of 30 plus on the last night of a week in Verona came here for what we thought would be a special night out. Painfully slow service resulting in a very late night. Food was average, service very slow, sadly didn't live up to expectations. Perhaps they shouldn't take large groups on a Sat night.

Make time to walk this bridge and view it from the side. It is not high elevation, but interesting construction and nearby old structures are photographic. It's also lovely at night.
